Between 6 – 11th November the exhibition 3DX14 – 14 Approaches to materialising form through 3D printing was held in Galleriet at AHO. It was presented by the elective course ‘Informed decision-making for 3D printing’ . The course was run in the fall of 2015, aiming to inform and give the participants in-depth insight into working with Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes. It seeked to give design- and architecture master-students at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, AHO, a basis of theoretical and practical knowledge into working with available 3D printing technologies.
The two days seminar few days ago has been a successful meeting for C-SAN Futures project. The core team of the seniors researchers from Norway,Sweden, Kenya, South Africa and China came together to discuss, organise and elaborate the future strategies for translating knowledge into action. The discussions were joined by an interdisciplinary group of researchers and designers outside the network team. People from informatics, ethnology, film, systems design, and sustainable humanitarian development contributed with their ideas, proposals and energy in order to develop a better understanding and further working plan on climate change and the role of design within this topic.
What’s real anyway? We live in a world with wars, mass migrations and strategic ploys for influence and occupation. This summer VR boomed, and drones flew military sorties and interrupted commercial carriers. AI and robotics were topical on the BBC. Chinese stocks plummeted. The words Volkswagen and emissions now have a different sense.
